Dynamite ~Ultimate seafood salad~

Dynamite ~Ultimate seafood salad~

This is ultimate seafood salad recipe. When I visited LA several years ago, my friend took me to an Asian restaurant there and I had a seafood dish called "Dynamite". It was comprised of a variety of delicacies from the sea. I was inspired to make my own version, adding salmon and several other ingredients. This dish is good as a salad, or even rolled up as sushi. Try this dynamite flavor!

Duck and Mixed Mushroom Salad with Orange Dressing

Duck and Mixed Mushroom Salad with Orange Dressing

Duck is such a wonderful protein to work with - succulent, moist, and juicy. In this recipe, I mixed pan-fried duck with a variety of hearty mushrooms and greens into a salad. Duck traditionally goes well with orange, so I topped the salad with an orange dressing (that I created in another recipe). The balance of the crispy duck against the full mushrooms and tart dressing is simply delicious.

Steak Salad with Warm Bacon Vinaigrette

Steak Salad with Warm Bacon Vinaigrette

Since my husband loves steak, we often have steak as a Sunday dinner. To give it more of a nutritious balance, I prepare the steak with a lot of fresh vegetables, and voila, a steak salad. Crisp fresh vegetables are wonderful topped with tender slices of juicy steak and a warm bacon vinaigrette. You can have this as main entrée or a large party salad. All steak-lovers will love it!

Caprese Custard

Caprese Custard

Caprese salad is a classic Italian appetizer. Mozzarella cheese, basil leaves, and tomatoes are brought together for a wonderful flavor. I took a slightly different approach to these flavors and created a Japanese style warm savory custard. It has a silky texture and the great flavor and aroma of basil leaves. Melted cheese and tomatoes round out the dish to make a savory and smooth concoction that is delightful to the palette.
